Introducing PRxPR a Relief fund to help those hardest hit in Puerto Rico
After spending 2 days in the shelter ourselves due to Hurricane Irma, playing a small role in helping the web development of this project come to life was a pleasure. Our hearts broke as we saw the destruction and also the massive amounts of hardship on the daily life for our southern neighbors. PRxPR is working on restoring power, providing clean water, working on agriculture grants, helping orphanages, and helping those who are hardest hit.
You can see more on the ground changes their doing on their Facebook feed here. I can’t say enough good things about the work their doing.
We worked with the New Hampshire based agency Bowst to help them quickly develop their unique vision for PRxPR as a WordPress Divi Child theme.
Just released on March 5th, 2018 some 6 months after IRMA landed and devastated Puerto Rico, it is reported* that 16% of the island nation is still without electricity.
Its incomprehensible to most of USA but can you imagine a natural disaster in any other state causing some of the most basic utilities that you require to be not restored after 6 months? To me that is unacceptable, Puerto Rico is a regional territory. Regardless every Puerto Rican is a citizen of the USA and its impossible for me to fathom that our citizens can be left without power for 6 months.
